Flea market finds make great panels...

We went to the annual town flea market not far from home as we do every year. I found some interesting glass dishes and seen a lid to what may have been a candy dish for .25 and thought what a cool flower center it would make. I worked up some petals and made these 3 panels. Each one is different and unique in there own way. I think they came out pretty cool.

Natalie's Panel

This is a panel I am doing for my granddaughter Natalie. It is long overdue but had a hard time finding the right pattern for her room that her Mom did an awesome job with. I searched many pattern sites and came across a name panel I liked but wasn't the right name. I contacted the designer and asked if she could make a Natalie for me. Thank you Marion at PDQpatterns.
I made the panel in copper foil and it will be framed in wood made by her granddad so it sure will be a labor of love.
Here are a few pics of the panel being made and also a picture of Natalie's beautiful bedroom it will be going.

This panel I did for my granddaughter Ava Sophie. My friend Denise Rogers designed this for me as I am not a pattern maker. I gave her the letter style and what I wanted and she hit it right on.

This was a commission piece that was a xmas gift for a little girls room. The grandmother drew what she wanted and this is what I came up with.

The butterfly at the top was done for my Granddaughter Abigail Elizabeth who room was done in this theme.

Wow I never realized how long it been since I updated this site. Its been a busy time for me, I had 3 granddaughters enter my life, Natalie Grace born Sept 22, 2009- Ava Sophie born Dec 22, 2009 and Abigail Elizabeth born Jan 25, 2010. We also had a wedding on Oct 10th for my son and his wife Marcy.

Had a fairly good show season and had some commission work from them. I will be posting the pics of some of my recent work
